Qatar’s manufacturing industry is of central importance to the government’s economic diversification drive, with high-value production lines receiving substantial public and private investment in recent years. The country appears to have worked the 2017-21 economic and diplomatic blockade put in place by a number of GCC countries to its advantage, with the new trade partnerships forged during that period contributing to the robust expansion of manufacturing and exports. The next stage of industrial development for Qatar sees the country at a relatively advanced stage of Industry 4.0 implementation, while the adoption of circular economy methods is also expected to contribute to the evolution of Qatari manufacturing.
